Autumn and Italy

Date posted: October 3, 2013

Autumn already! At a few book signings recently I have autographed and personalised books with the words “A Merry Christmas” !!!!!  All bought by women who already are ticking things off their Christmas list. As with most men of my acquaintance, I will naturally be Christmas shopping around the evening of the 24th December in the dreich December weather.  The rain is coming down in buckets as I write this but at least we can bask in the glow of happy memories of a pleasant and warm summer.

Dorothy and her two sisters went to Verona to the performance of Aida held in the arena. Something they had always wanted to do. Luckily, I wasn’t invited!  They had a fantastic time and Dorothy has been humming melodies (?!) ever since. After the weekend the coven parted and Dorothy’s sisters returned home while I flew out to Milan to join her. We then took the train to Pettenasco in Northern Italy to a hotel on L’Ago d’Orta – Lake Orta. It is a beautiful and tranquil place and we chilled out for a week with a few younger members of our family.


Never mind the travelogue I hear you all saying, what about Tears 5? Actually, the book now has a name “Shadow of a Tear” and is being edited. It should be out on Kindle by the end of October and as a paperback in time for Christmas.

This weekend – Friday 4th, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October, A Million Tears will be offered as a special promotion on Kindle. It will be free, as usual, and I hope it draws in many more readers to the series.

I don’t plan another in the series – they are hard work to write, believe me. However, I will have a new Nick Hunter (TIFAT) book ready for next summer. All those who have read the books know they are fast paced, filled with action, topical and with a happy ending. The bad guys all die. Perfect!

I’ll be out and about from now until Christmas at various events, book-signing so do pop along if it is convenient.

Happy reading.
